If you are not sure where to start your research, here are a few tips.
Make sure you have chosen an appropriate subject and then pose a question about your subject. This will give you direction to assist you in focusing on your topic.
Before you start your search for information, think about what you already know about your subject and develop a research strategy.
Look through the Databases by Subject list on the library's website and choose the subject related to your topic. When you click on a subject, you'll see a list of recommended databases.
Once you have identified some appropriate sources in our databases, you must locate them - either online, in the Library's stacks, or if we do not own the item, request them through InterLibrary Loan.
Try one of the following multi-purpose academic databases (please see below).
Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Primary Source Sets are designed to help students develop critical thinking skills in history, literature, and culture. Each set includes a topic overview, ten to fifteen primary sources, links to related resources, and a teaching guide. These sets were created and reviewed by the teachers on the DPLA's Education Advisory Committee.
